Audi Sport Quattro S1 Group B
Stig Blomqvist was Rally World Champion in 1984 in the long Audi Quattro A2. Then, from the 1984 Sanremo Rally onwards, he naturally drove the new short Sport Quattro. Already at the second event, the Rally Ivory Coast in Africa, he managed the first and only victory of the Sport Quattro in the World Rally Championship.
After four wins on their previous four attempts, Röhrl/Geistdörfer “only” finished second overall on the 1985 Monte Carlo Rally driving a Sport Quattro. The event will always be remembered for the fight between Röhrl’s Audi and Ari Vatanen in the mighty Peugeot. Vatanen had a major setback when his co-driver clocked into a time control early giving them eight minutes penalty. But then Röhrl chose the wrong tires on the way back to Monte Carlo and Vatanen was back in the lead.
